CROOKED CREEK (Anderson County). Crooked Creek rises five miles southwest of Palestine in southwestern Anderson County (at 31°41' N, 95°40' W) and runs southwest for 5½ miles to its mouth on the Trinity River, two miles west of Sulphur Springs (at 31°38' N, 95°43' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches, and its banks are heavily wooded in places with mixed pine and hardwood trees. The surrounding nearly level to moderately steep terrain is surfaced by sandy, clayey, and loamy upland soils. The area is used mainly as woodland and for agriculture.
